Reader's Realm: Sports
with Lisa

Welcome to the Readers’ Realm.  This month’s genre: SPORTS! Plan to read your book in about a month.  A new discussion topic will be posted each Wednesday from now through March 24. Then on to a new genre/category!   



Feel free to post as much as you like.  Click on the title of the post to get to the comment page. Be sure to read others’ comments and respond to them.   Let’s get to it: 

There are SO many sports and books about them!  What sport is your book about?  I find that sports books fall into two types: having the sporting event front and center (little else matters) or having the characters and their problems/adventures front and center with the sporting event as more of a backdrop.  Which do you think your book will be?   

Please include the title and author of the book you’re reading in your post. 
I’m reading "Gabby Garcia’s Ultimate Playbook" by Iva-Marie Palmer.  The main character, Gabby, is a baseball player.  I’m only up to page 40, but it seems that while baseball will be important to the book, as it is important to Gabby’s life, the story will be more about her adapting to a new school, new friends, a new team, and a bully.  I’m hoping there’s some good baseball action though. 

What’s happening in your book? Still looking for a book to read? Check out some suggestions below!
